Turmoil in Middle East

I think the Middle East needs better government, honest leaders, and stronger human rights. My heart and thoughts are with those innocent people who are affected by the turmoil in the Middle East. The thing is, I don’t have much more to say about what is going on there because I don’t follow it closely enough to have an informed opinion. From what I see though, I think this is happening because a lot of the young people are fed up with corruption and a lack of opportunity.
I can sympathize because my home country has the same problems.

This is not only affecting Middle Eastern countries but also, other counties too, like us here in the United States. Gas prices are rising significantly even though our wages aren’t going up. And gas prices don’t just affect what we pay at the pump. It affects the prices charged for a lot of goods and services like food and heating.

I hope and pray that this thing going on in the Middle East gets settled peacefully and soon.


  1. Gina,I think you are right: many changes are occurring because of the pent up desires and dreams of young people. Our lives are tied to these young people, so I hope your prayers are met.

  2. Hi, Gina, my nephew was using my computer, so I posted the comment above under his name, Shawyon!
